****Newbie Day 4.0****

Come join Norcal Snowboarders for a $36 adult lift tix at Boreal. We had huge newbie turnout the last two weekends, and we wanted to give those guys a chance to take advantage of the 1-2-3 RIDE program. If you took a beginner lesson last week, here is your chance to get in lesson 2 of 3 towards your free SEASON PASS for Boreal. For FAQ's go to If you're not a beginner, just come on out and enjoy a kickback day on the snow. With NORCAL SNOWBOARDERS your adult lift tix will be $36.

Learning to ski or snowboard takes time but with the 1-2-3 Ride Free program Boreal makes it simple!  Come back to our ski school program 3 times in one season and we'll give you a FREE SEASON PASS!  *Holiday rates apply

The program is pretty simple.  If you take lessons at Boreal, we will track your days.  Lessons are intended for beginning skiers and snowboarders only, ages 4 and up.  No initial registration is needed, after you complete the first lesson your instructor will give you a registration card with directions on how to sign-up for the program.

All three lessons must be completed to be eligible for the season pass.  The season pass is only valid for the person whom completes the lessons and is non-transferable.  The season pass is only valid for the remainder of the 2011/2012 season.  Boreal reserves the right to refuse anyone from the program if the instructor feels the student is not a beginner.  1-2-3 Ride Free is subject to sell-out.
